So, after reading the whole article, they pretty-much say that they have no idea if the numbers are right because there are too many variables. But don't let that keep you from publishing something.

At least the headline is AWESOME.

Great headline, +1. Would be too much to ask if the article was about dyslexia though.

Well, ask anyone in Utah, and they'll tell you that they're descended from Joseph Smith, so it's probably the inbreeding.

Maybe that's just god's way of telling the Mormons to go fark them themselves.

That's about it. Either Smith or Brigham Young. Or Rmoney.

isn't there a link between parent age and number of older siblings and chance of being Autistic?

So if you are from a sect that has large families and for longer the chances of your kids having autism goes up

I remember in the local TV guide they would list "LDS World Conference" as a show, except one time they showed it as "LSD World Conference"

I think the second one sounds a lot more fun, although it could get a little scary.

How shocking, people who profit from finding more retarded children are finding more retarded children. No conflict of interest identified. Give them more money so they can find more retards.

The rule with Utah is you stay outside The Zion Curtain (60 mile radius of Salt Lake City, but not including SLC itself). Well, that and smuggle booze in from out of state. And eat plenty of Mexican food (me gusta Betos y Rancheritos).

It's a known fact playing "Shoot, Screw and Marry" is difficult here since an overwhelming majority fall into the former categories.

The local beers are killer, though. Link (new window)

So the highest concentration of a fake disorder made up to make parents that ignore their children feel better about themselves is most prevalent in Utah? How does that relate to Elvis sightings, an equally valid medical diagnosis?

Yeah, especially when the article says: Researchers say the spike is real in Utah and can't be attributed to over diagnosis or a different definition of autism.

Which is pretty much exactly the opposite of what you wrote. But whatever.
 
2012-03-29 11:18:48 PM  
I thought having your kids diagnosed with autism was just an excuse to get prescription drugs to sell, and special treatment on exams for your 'autistic' kids?

Yes, clearly diagnosing mental disorders is just a massive hoax and doctors and pharmaceutical reps are doing lines of coke off of strippers somewhere in the Caribbean. And nobody ever benefits from antidepressants or cognitive-behavioral therapy or, for that matter, beta blockers or ACE inhibitors or insulin. It's all just a money racket.

Utah also has the highest usage of anti-depressants of any state..

gotta agree, they both suck, and they're in the one area of town you dont want to admit you've been to.

the only reason to go there is to find your hooker standing outside the plasma facility, you just claim it's for the Iguana.
